He should've known it was going to rain. The foreboding dark clouds that hung heavily over the sky and the distant rumble of thunderclaps were more than enough to alert August to the impending weather. Yet here he was, drenched to the bone and now rushing towards a bush shelter so as to duck out of the rain. Thankfully it didn't seem like it would be too heavy, for now at least. It could turn in a matter of minutes to howling winds and flashes of lightning and August wouldn't be the bit surprised. He didn't consider himself a lucky person but he also did not like to dote on that idea either. It could've been worse. In his opinion the times when the sun was blazing at it's full glory was the worse. It irritated his eyes and he often sought out somewhere to sleep it away.
The male pulled his hoodie closer to himself, zipping up the front and then absentmindedly adjusting the drawstrings so they were even before shoving his hands into his pockets. He palmed a Pokeball that was snug there, the Taillow inside cozy and away from the elements. It almost made August jealous of the creature. He hadn't even really an explanation as to why he decided to capture the Pokemon. Those sorts of things never really had interested him. Nothing much really did but one day he had just splurged on a few Pokeballs and now here he was several months later. He didn't consider it a bad decision though. Maybe at first it had been awkward but by now he had grown fond of the Taillow and had even named her. They didn't battle much, simply lingered in each other's presences while wandering about with no clear aim.
August shuffled a few feet to his left and sat down on a wooden bench that had seen better days. He traced his fingers across the numerous grooves carved out by other bored prisoners of the clear plastic shelter. Initials, names, and symbols that really didn't mean much of anything to him. His hand went back into his pocket and August let out a huff of air, leaning sideways to rest against the thin wall that separated him from the wet weather outside.
